TEA WITH NETTY #52: Bass-baritone Dingle Yandell

As summer approaches, bass-baritone Dingle Yandell joins Netty in the fields of Glyndebourne for the latest episode. They have compelling conversations, from his discovery of British novelty pop act Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers to sharing experiences of music college auditions and there are revelations behind the meaning of names.

Dingle Yandell, who was part of the first cohort of OAE’s Rising Stars of the Enlightenment, shares his journey and musical influences before the Classical world. Dingle opens up about his approach to learning music and engages in authentic conversations about the struggles and challenges performers face that are not typically seen on stage. He also gives a behind-the-scenes glimpse of how he filmed the iconic Rising Stars music video ‘What Power Art Thou’ (Purcell), inspired by Gotye.

Tea with Netty is the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment’s podcast hosted by viola player Annette Isserlis (Netty). Over a cuppa (or something a little stronger…), Netty chats with a variety of conductors, players and other guests as she ‘spills the tea’ on the side of classical music you don’t normally hear.
